Perk Up Your Menu with the Fresh Zing of Grapefruit
It’s mid-January, meaning diners’ palates are still getting over holiday indulgences and looking for something to brighten the winter mood. Enter grapefruit, a jolt of tart, bracing flavor and vivid pink and red hues. Take a cue from these recipes and layer it with thinly sliced hamachi in a tower topped with candied turmeric, or sprinkle it with sugar and torch it brûlée-style until caramelized. Pair it with jicama and pickled carrots for a tangy salad, or combine the juice with miso and soy in a savory dipping sauce for pork. Best yet, mix up a Salty Cat with grapefruit-infused gin and salted fruit syrup.
